It's a very valid opinion.
I'd rather prefer Python, but I must admit I have real experience in Python and I've only read Ruby programs.
@fribbledom two obese languages with excessive package repositories, but at least one of them has types...
@ScumbagDog @fribbledom That's a good point. For me, it's more that Python is the big hammer. Rust is more of a precision instrument. It can make better software, but 9 times out of 10, I'm just going to grab the big hammer and be done with whatever small thing I need done. Especially being close to data science, Python is simply far more mature in that space. A Jupyter notebook wouldn't lose to Rust on ease of exploring a dataset. Not yet at least.
@fribbledom pretty easy choice for me. Python is the language of choice for AI researchers these days.
I've been meaning to take a good look at Rust sometime, but first I need to learn some Julia, which is in my view the only language with any chance to replace Python for at least some of the applications I'm using it for.
I know Rust is highly regarded but it's used for other stuff. Don't think there's ever a project where someone has to decide between Python and Rust.
I have set up bombs everywhere here, make PYTHON win or I will blow up the Fediverse

@fribbledom Now that it’s all over, I would be curious to see a comparison between last year’s competition and this one.
